Battle of the books


As a school, we want to help enthuse your child about reading! The following book lists have been highly recommended as they represent a range of genres which we hope will ignite, re-kindle or help boost your child’s desire to read for pleasure.

The books have been carefully chosen, from a wide range of authors, which will provide your child with a balance of genres. From these, your child may find a book or an author they wish to read more of and become a favourite of theirs.

Why are we so passionate about reading? When children read widely and often, they attain better and can access what school has to offer.

 In the words of the brilliant author - J.K. Rowling  'I do believe something very magical can happen when you read a good book'.


Battle of the Books is a reading incentive program designed to encourage students to read quality literature.

We are launching this exciting competition to challenge our children to read as many books as they can by the end of the school year.

  • All children can enter the Battle of the Books. These books are to be read alongside your usual school reading book.
  • Each year group will have a list of books to read throughout the year. You need to read 4 books and write a review by July 2020 (this will usually be 12 per year)
  • Some of the books you will be able to find in school and others you will need to borrow from local libraries or from each other.
  • As you read each book, an adult will need to sign your reading record to say you have completed each book. Then PRINT YOUR BOOK REVIEW FORM and complete it – handing it to your teacher. Your teacher will then sign your reading record to show the book is finished.
  • You can read as many books as you want and take as long as you want. You will be awarded a badge when you complete at least 4 books and book reviews (usually 12 per year)
  • The first person in each class to complete the challenge (with detailed book reviews) will get the chance to make an exciting video review of their favourite book for their class web page.
